Brady on D&C: BB gun favorite Xmas gift

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning, only hours after leading the Pats to a 31-27 victory over the Packers at Gillette Stadium.

 

The Packers started the game with an onside kick that they recovered, and they pushed the Patriots to the limit. "These games are hard to win any way you're looking at them," Brady said. "They played very well. From the opening kickoff I knew that, OK this is going to be one of those games. This is the way it's going to go."

 

Added Brady: "I'm sure we lost the field-position battle last night. And we overcame a bunch of penalties. I don't think we played our best game, certainly, but I'm also very proud of that fact that we won the game."

 

The highlight Sunday night was offensive lineman Dan Connolly returning a kickoff 71 yards to the Packers' 4-yard line. Connolly held the...

Mashup: Jets' Ryan returns to tears

Jets coach Rex Ryan returned to his emotional ways, tearing up before his team in a meeting Saturday night, and it helped inspire the Jets to a victory over the Steelers in Pittsburgh on Sunday. Said receiver Jerricho Cotchery: "To see that passion from Rex shows you how much he cares about it. It has an effect on you as a player. You want to go out there and give it all for our coach who's up there crying. 
Our coach is a very passionate guy. To see how much he cares, to see him pulling it out up there, there was a sense of, 'Let's go. We've got to get better.' We made sure we laid it on the line for him and for ourselves."

Brady on Connolly: 'Longest return ever'

FOXBORO — Tom Brady always looks to offensive linemen such as Dan Connolly to give him time to pick apart defenses and put points on the board. Sunday night, just before the two-minute warning in the first half, Brady watched from the sideline in stunned amazement as the 6-foot-4, 313-pound right guard gave the Patriots quarterback something totally unexpected — great field position.

 

Connolly posted the longest-recorded kickoff return ever by an offensive lineman when he returned Mason Crosby's kick to the Packers' 4-yard line, setting Brady up for a TD pass to Aaron Hernandez on third-and-goal. To Brady, the kick return was far more than a funny sideshow. It came after Matt Flynn found Greg Jennings for a 1-yard TD pass to make it 17-7, and Gillette Stadium was in stunned silence. The kick return jump-started the Patriots.

 

"That was the longest kickoff return ever," Brady said. "I've...

Donald Driver: Pats 'are beatable'

FOXBORO-- Following his team's 31-27 loss to the Patriots, a frustrated Donald Driver told reporters that the Patriots are certainly "beatable."

 

"Yes, they are beatable. That was a proven fact tonight," said Driver. "The last two weeks they've been blowing people out and we came in here and gave them a battle. If we don't turn the ball over and if they don't get that big kick-off return before halftime; they're down seven points. If we don't give those up, we win. So, the biggest thing is we beat ourselves once again."

 

The 35-year-old Driver finished the game with three catches for 31-yards. One of those receptions came with 29 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter and was ruled one-yard short of a first-down. The ruling on the field made it fourth-down and impossible for the Packers to stop the clock with a spike because they had no timeouts remaining. Driver talked...

Vince Wilfork: No apologies for a win

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork found no reason to apologize for his team's 31-27 victory over the Packers. While the game might have been closer than most expected -- particularly given that Green Bay was playing with backup quarterback Mike Flynn, and not Aaron Rodgers -- Wilfork suggested that any efforts to criticize the manner in which the Patriots won the game missed the point.

 

"We came up big. We came up big for us," Wilfork said of the defense. "This game wasn’t perfect, but at the end of the day, W’s, that’s what counts. I think good teams find a way to win, especially in December.

 

"Green Bay, I tip my cap to them. They came out fired up and played a hell of a ballgame. Flynn did a hell of a job. Looking at him this week, he ran the offense pretty well. We weren’t shocked that he was going to come out and perform," Wilfork continued. "It was all...
